    Re: apparent size of sun and moon
    From: Robert Wyatt

    We know that during a solar eclipse the apparent sizes of the moon and
    the sun are very close. This might be two or more superimposed photos,
    but it was not a single photo.

    see how the sun and moon could appear to be so extremely different in size.  
    Is this a Photoshop manipulation of reality for 'artistic' effect ?
